different valuation that needs to be taken into account in judging between incumbent barack obama and his challenger mitt romney. that is the jinx of the second term on many presidents. only seven of 19 presidents elective to a second term avoided having a troubled or failed second term. that would give the country about a 38% chance of obama and the nation experiencing an improved security and economic climate after four years if obama is reelected. i do not suggest the gamble should not be taken. simply that history interplay in with politics might give us pause. what does history predict about a second term for barack obama? were he reelected with so few presidents having success at that time in office? what are the challenges that face those who had troubled or failed second terms? what allowed others to succeed? can barack obama overcome these challengess if he is reelected to become a member of that select group of presidents that waded through the quagmire of a second term and somehow came through relatively unscathed? success in a second term does not imply there were not failures

holiday went well. president obama and hillary clinton could not have expected their week to unfold as it did. the president was hoping to focus new attention on the promise of u.s. relations with the far east. secretary clinton was with him on what she thought would be her last overseas mission. instead, mr. obama found himself on the phone with middle east leaders as israel and hamas in gaza rained down rockets on each other. and secretary clinton headed for the region hoping to use a cease-fire to search for longer term answers. >> now we have to focus on reaching a durable outcome that promotes regional stability and advances the security, dignity, and legitimate aspirations of palestinians and israelis alike. pete: but she also made it clear the u.s. is firmly supporting its ally israel. peter baker was traveling with the president. peter, with all the changes in the region, how has the u.s. role changed in this process? >> well, of course, you saw president obama taking a very hands on role in this. something that he's been reluctant to do at times in the past. he had a bad ex

whole taxpayer-funded stunt about having his cold case posse uncover the fraud of president obama's birth certificate, that sheriff did get re-elected, barely. last time he won by a 13-point landslide. this time he won by much less than that, but did get re-elected. and that public publicity-hungry arizona sheriff is not the only arizona official who has lately been fixated on the president's birth certificate. the arizona secretary of state this year threatened to keep president obama off the ballot in arizona for this year's election. because, you know, kenya, or whatever. and because that is the record of arizona's secretary of state, the state's current top elections official, i think nobody had very high expectations for him in terms of how well he would do running elections in the state of arizona. and indeed, the arizona elections this year went horribly. and it took them 14 days to even come up with the results. but they do have results. and surprise, i'm thankful to report that that same arizona republican secretary of state, who was a birther and who threatened to screw up

obama care on the table. there's no question in my mind. >> how does that make sense, michelle? >> well, it makes sense because eric cantor's team lost the election and their hopes of repealing obama care is pretty much shot. so their last chance at undermining a bill that they all hate and campaigned on repealing is to try and make it look like the only thing reasonable for the defendant to do is to throw it in the mix. of course, that's not true. they are just grasping at last straws here. >> can i make a moment on that? >> yes. go ahead. >> if i were president obama and i were sitting in that room and negotiating with these members and someone brought up -- if eric cantor brought up putting affordable care act on the table, i would be well within my rights to stand up and walk out of that room. that is absolutely ridiculous. i totally agree everything should be on the table when it comes to fiscal policy but this election was an entorsment of the affordable care act. these guys, i think, are really nuts to try to raise that as an issue in this context. >> well, the other par

the united states. at the white house today, senior obama administration officials met with liberal leaders and union officials. "the washington post" reports that one told him after the meeting, quote, would the white house go off the cliff if it's between that and compromising their core principles? i was left with the impression that they would. illinois democratic senator dick durbin spoke today at the liberal center for american progress where he said this about the possibility of going off the cliff which fears of this show know is is really more of a curb than a cliff. >> some have called let's go over the cliff and watch what happens. we know if we're not careful, it will in fact stop economic growth and hurt everyone through every income category, particularly those most vulnerable. >> what he did not say is he must not go off the cliff. because the cliff is president obama's and the congressional democrats leverage over republicans. if we do go off the cliff or the curb on january 1st, a republican nightmare will occur. all income tax rates will go up and defense spending

netanyahu. >> president obama asked me to come to israel with a very clear message. america's commitment to israel's security is rock solid and unwavering. that's why we believe it is essential to de-escalate the situation. the rocket attacks from terrorist organizations inside gaza on israeli cities and towns must end and a broader calm restored. >> so you hear hillary clinton there. israel saying some of the conditions that they want out of this cease fire would be having no more rockets fired out of gaza. soldiers patrolling the frontier would, in fact, not be attacked. weapons, stockpiles wouldn't be replenished. it seems like a tall order. it is something that israel has agreed to. as we saw the bombing today it hasn't happened yet. we're going to be joined by tim mack a defense reporter for politico. tim, thanks for coming on to the show. you know, i want to ask you tim, is president obama -- he's overseeing all of this. do we know he's doing a good job here? are we able to judge whether or not his response to this from afar by sending clinton there was the right thing? >> well, wh
